My friends I celebrated my birthday at Lena’s. The food, ambiance, and service is always great. It was my fifth time dining at the restaurant. My only complaint is the small high-top table selected for our seating. We were a party of 6 with gifts, purses, and coats, and the table was too small for our food, drinks and personal items. There was no where to put things. We would’ve been able to use the back of a chair but we sat on high stools. The hostess did offer to keep our coats which helped and was appreciated. Unfortunately, it was not still ideal seating at all. We asked for a different table with chairs but we were told other tables were booked. Normally the seating option wouldn’t have been an issue but given the circumstances it was a pain to try to keep making space for everything.

I wish we could’ve been accommodated but we made the best of it.

Very nice setting. I was skeptical about it being in a tent but it was very tastefully decorated and well thought out. We will definitely come back.

The outdoor set-up was unique, nicely done and socially distanced appropriately. There was a lot of confusion in seating us. Once we were seated the dining experience was nice. The food was good, not outstanding. The cocktails took forever to be delivered and then they were pretty bad, didn't taste right and were watered down. Stick with wine. The servers were nice and professional, but it was all very, very slow.

We had a wonderful time at Lena’s! The food was wonderful and service was perfect. I cannot say enough about the Oasis area they’ve created in response to Covid. A lot of places stick a tent in the parking lot. Lena’s has created a true oasis on top of the parking garage. Huge tall tents, plants, chandeliers and colored lighting, beautiful divider walls, drapes. They’ve built a faux platform floor and covered the walls. It is truly beautiful and we very much enjoyed the atmosphere.

In these crazy times, it is nice to have a lovely place to go. The wine list is constricted, so the one you used to love might not be there. But on Wednesday night, bottles are half price, so you really cannot complain! Our waiter, Justin, was as kind as he could have been.

We are in the tent area in the back. What a great job they have done with decorating! Social distanced between tables, hand sanitizer brought to table, and most importantly the food was spot on! We did the meatball, pizzas, and chicken parm. All the food was excellent as were the cocktails and beer.

Had heard about this place but had yet to visit. After reading how they created a new area where social distancing can be easily enforced as well as about all their current practices during the pandemic, I decided to give it a shot. We parked in the garage underneath and walked up to the oasis. This place is calm and upbeat. Our waiter, Brandon did a great job, as did everyone else in the staff. The spinach artichoke dip is yummy. Overall, we were very happy with our drinks and entrees and even tried an amazing dessert (Mascarpone Cheesecake). You have a new customer.

We were looking for a place that was following protocols for Covid as well as a place fun for adults and kids. We stumbled on Wine Down Wednesday which is 50% off all bottles of wine. Nice surprise. The Oasis takes reservations which is a nice open tent that has lots of ventilation and well spaced tables. We had several pizzas, pastas and salads and all were tasty snd generous portions. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and wines-beyond- that wine is popular. Give this place a try. It almost felt like we were pre Covid and able to enjoy eating out with little worry.

Lena's Oasis is the only place I feel safe dining at the restaurant - their beautiful outdoor tent was purpose-built for dining in these COVID-19 times. And the food is still excellent. Good job Lena's!

The fettuccini was perfectly cooked. The Alfredo sauce was wonderful and creamy and very favorable. They have somewhat of a heavy hand with the garlic but it tasted great. The spinach and artichoke was actually one of the best I have. While the toast that accompanied the dig was soft and elegant...there wasn't enough of it. Our waiter was polite, gave us time, had fun answers to our questions. Oh and the outdoor room was like dining in a garden or rainforest. It was an excellent night out.

Great good and service at Lena's! We enjoyed two new dishes on Wednesday evening, when they have half-price bottles of wine, and enjoyed the braised leg of lamb which was fantastic and the steak frites was were very good as well. The pasta here is phenomenal and the only reason I didn't have it for dinner was because I was on a diet and keep pasta to lunchtime. Server was George and he was excellent and attentive. Same with Sandy on Sunday morning for a mid-morning breakfast.

Our only complaint is the that the music is too loud most of the time, set at a volume more four younger people who might be there as singles. But a group of older types, like us, or families, are not so comfortable with the volume. And I think we make up a high percentage of the clientele during dining hours, than the younger singles.

But a great place for great food, service and fair prices.

Had another lovely evening at Lena’s. They follows CDC protocols and felt very comfortable. Only downside was temps are starting to fall and without heaters yet installed, it was a bit chilly.

They had the tent set up (Lena's Oasis) with lots of cool SoCal/Maimi/Middle Eastern vibes. The food was delicious. Our waitress (Alexandra I think) was phenomenal and the food was amazing! We did not have pizza as we had it a few days earlier but their Italian was delicious!! WE found out that everything, down to the noodles and sauce, was homemade. Lots of love and care went into their food. We would definitely go back!!

Absolutely love this place. The Oasis is a pure genius way to socially distance the tables yet still maintain a unique and aesthetically pleasing decor. The food is always amazing and delicious. I felt that Covid precautions and cleaning requirements were adhered to, and they have a great way of signifying that their tables have been disinfected. Hand sanitizer is readily available on every table and all wait staff were wearing masks and gloves. Can’t wait to go back!

The grilled calimari appetizer was very good. The squid was tender and tasty. The wife’s salmon was cooked perfectly! My Sunday Sauce dinner was fair, the noodles and sauce was good and actually Very tasty with the sunny side up eggs mixed in. The Italian sausage and the small piece of pork were good but the chicken breast meat was dry and inedible! The oasis decor was fun and enjoyable. What was not enjoyable was the loud contemporary music! It was so loud all the people in the place were practically screaming to be heard! The Service from the waitress and table staff was excellent.
